Is this indication of a paver paved

I see following call stack for finalizer thread. Is it normal to have a call to WaitForSingleObject at top in finalizer? Is there anyway I can determine if its not deadlocked or waiting for really long time?

This is a finalizer worker and it is blocked for a RPC response. In this case if the thread is not waiting for more than a few milliseconds (depending on how long the COM server takes to respond to the request) it is normal. But if we are waiting longer then you might want to investigate what happened to the response packet.

There is no way in user mode to understand what's the tick-count of the thread you may want to examine the same thread using livekd on a running system if the problem is re-producible
